Holiday Fruit Compote for French Toast

Submitted by: CCKELLY3

Introduction

Using up the leftover fruits and baking goods from the holidays, I decided to make a fruit compote topping for my French Toast instead of syrup. It's healthier and nutritious. If you don't have any leftover cranberry sauce, substitute 2 Tbs of apple butter.
I use sunflower oil for sweet dishes, where I don't want a hint of the olive oil taste, but want the monosaturated and good fats.

Ingredients

    1 cup blueberries (fresh or unsweetened frozen)
    1 medium banana, sliced thin
    1/4 cup chopped walnuts
    1/4 cup water
    2 Tbs cranberry sauce
    1 tsp sunflower oil (can use a light olive oil)

Directions

This makes about 5 quarter cup servings.

1. Heat a frying pan on medium high heat (in which you'll later make the french toast) with 1 tsp of oil, until it sizzles.

2. Add the walnuts and shake the pan to evenly toast. After about 1 minute, add the banana slices and let cook together for 1 minute. Then add the cranberry sauce and water, and stir till the cranberry sauce melts into a kind of glaze, breaking up any bits that stay as chunks. Add the blueberries, freshly washed, and stir well for about 1-2 mintues.

3. Cover and lower the heat to a simmer, let meld together for about 4-5 mintues. If the glaze is too thin, take off the cover, turn the heat to medium, and stirring constantly to keep from burning, let thicken to your taste.

4. Scoop 1/4 cup evenly over 2 slices of warm french toast and enjoy:)
